Prova de Aptidão Pessoal realizada no ano letivo 2020/2021, com parceria com o Colégio de Gaia e a Escola Superior de Escola Superior de Saúde do Porto
In the segment dedicated to the prototyping, as the name indicates, will consist in everything related to how the components are arranged, like which components will go where and that sort of things. This segment is mostly about the conversation of the schematics into reality for instance to a PCB and the 3D design (SolidWorks) and 3D printing behind the physical structure of the project thus conferring a more professional look to the prototype. Ultimately, in the section devoted to the results it will have not only the outcome of project, but some mistakes and problems found on the way, complemented with their solution or solutions if they were found. To sum up, this project pretends through Hardware and the Software created achieve a simple system, which interface is appealing, functional and dead simple, which will allow the user to perform two motor functional tests which will collect data, analyze it and display it in a graphicly simple and appealing way. In the end of the tests, the data will be collected, as mentioned previously, by the Arduino and sent to the Raspberry Pi, where they will be analyzed, processed, and sent back to the database where they will be stored and archived. Once all the data went through the database it will be available on the website so the user can interact. This interaction will be based on changing some of the data, for example the name, age, address, NIF (tax identification number) and by clicking in the “Análise” button where the user will have access to graphs and a table with certain values such as average speed, total time, and average time. During the development of the software for the ArdPi, it was crucial that the programmer was careful because being a software responsible for the connection between two devices, the syntaxes needed to be correct or else it would create unnecessary difficulties. By using some simple components and a not so simple programming this project was able to excide all the expectations aimed by the teachers, staff, and everyone in general, by creating a functional prototype which can certainly be used in the future of physiotherapy.
